MotoGP » Pedrosa: We need to make a step forward

ElbowDown93: i think Honda are intentionally ignoring Dani.. etc...don't think that Honda are helping Dani even half of what they have been providing for Marquez..
This year the tyres are significantly different, and the standard software has impacted Honda more than other manufacturers. Other Honda riders have complained about traction control cutting in down the straight, and generally not working as it should. Such problems could affect Pedrosa more due to his lighter weight...maybe. Whatever, he will be working through it. He hasn't lost his talent. Marquez is often underestimated on here. Yes he's loose and sometimes wild, but he's undeniably good. Hopefully Dani and his team will sort out the bike - if not in Texas, then within the next couple of races. If they can, he's still close enough to challenge.

MotoGP » Suzi Perry: Motorsport needs Rossi, Hamilton figures

Yes, it should be all about celebrity pulling power, much more than the racing. MotoGPs should be decided by Facebook likes...NOT. Rossi has properly earned his place, because he's an exceptionally good rider. His celebrity carry on detracts from his legacy though, IMHO - especially after his late season tantrum last year. I accept that he's exceptionally capable in the PR management area compared to his peer group, but he was brought up with much better support than most riders - so he ought to be better at it. I prefer to judge them on their on-track performance than their marketing ability. They can have the money it brings, and good luck to them, but racing is simply about the racing. F1 is boring. MotoGP is still the tickeet...

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'eager to recover some points'

Hopefully the Michelins perform a bit better at COTA, and the race isn't split with bike changes. Lorenzo will need to ride a good race here, and I'd be surprised if he doesn't figure prominently at the end of the race. Winning? That's just a guess until we've seen how the Hondas, Ducatis, Yamahas and Suzukis run with all the new variables. If the paddock chat is to be believed, and it sounds a bit more concrete when the dollar amount is quoted, Lorenzo will make the silly season interesting. It adds some spice to the mix, for sure.

MotoGP » Top satellite objective for Smith

Unfortunately, Yamaha deliberately limited the performance of the Tech 3 bikes by pulling the full seamless, and only allowing a part seamless, and other back-level revisions. At the same time, Ducati has improved the bike, and put more effort last year into understanding the control software. The Suzuki has developed more power in a sweet handling package, with a full seamless still to come. Only Aliex is struggling to go fast on a factory bike. Crazy Joe is struggling to keep it upright, but that's a different issue. Despite the great leveller of the control software and return to Michelin, the factory bikes seem harder to beat than last year. Bradders now knows how to play this game, and he is nothing if not resilient. He just needs to keep at it and find a few tricks to adjust to the new reality.

MotoGP » Rossi calls on Ducati to fix tyre problems

When Ducati had to make a frame to suit Rossi's demands, the other manufacturers had to take a 6 kg penalty, because it wasn't fair to Rossi. Rossi fans thought that was fair Rossi thought it still wasn't enough, because lighter riders had an "unfair advantage". His fans raised the hue and cry over it, demanding ballast for riders lighter than Rossi. Now when there are problems with tyres for riders that are heavier than Rossi, on a more powerful bike, he wants the bike crippled to make it fair...well, to advantage himself really. The problem is the tyre. Michelin needs to fix the tyres. No doubt they will. It isn't the bike. No Bridgestone rear had this particular problem. In the mean time, the riders' opinions are self-serving.
